  • Awesome Scooby Episode!

    10
    The Mystery Inc. Gang are out in The Himalayas when they learn of a mysterious Yeti Snow Ghost that is out in the area, mostly to get revenge on the man that was responsible for its death. When it starts to terrorize the group, another mystery has to be solved.



    I've seen the majority of the old Scooby episodes, but oddly, I've never seen this one. I'm glad I finally did as I strongly believe this is one of the most awesome Scooby-Doo episodes in the original series. From the opening scene, where we learn of the snow ghost, we are immediately drawn in to the mystery, and like every Scooby episode, we want to know how it ends. Plus it's always great to see Scooby being Scooby, this time having to use his skills to rescue Velma from a sawmill. Awesome episode, and I loved every minute of it.moreless
  • Very Enjoyable!

    8.5
    This is a very solid episode with a Great Setting - Himalayas - and a Very Dangerous sinister "Snow Ghost" he was by far the most violent monster of them all and is a bit over-dangerous almost! The Plot for the episode is wacky and laughable actually but it still plays out well. There can only be one villain behind it all and he gives himself away with his evil laugh. This is probably the most hectic and fast paced episode of the series and is an extremely fun episode. It is the same basic style as "Never ape an ape man" very silly and wacky but very enjoyable (exept much better) It was not a Superb episode but it was definitely more than average for the final episode of a terrific series! 8.5/10 :Dmoreless
  • Well written

    The gang stops at Wolfs End Lodge for night. They meet chuckling lodge owner, Mr Greenway, who warns them to lock their doors and windows or the Snow Ghost will get them and turn them into ghosts. No sooner does he leave that the Snow Ghost soon shows up outside their windows. They investigate the Snow Ghost's footprints and follow them on snowmobiles. They find the Snow Ghost on a cliff. He flies right over them and into the woods beyond.

    The gang finds a cave furnished with Tibetan objects. Ringing a gong, they summon a man named Fu-Lan-Chi, a refugee from the Himalayas. He had encountered the Yeti in Asia, but it had eluded him and tumbled down to its death in a crevasse. But his escape was shortlived, as it followed him into the US to seek its revenge. The gang don't know what to think of Fu-Lan-Chi's story but they find a new set of tracks covered in sawdust. They follow the sawdust-covered tracks to a deserted sawmill. Scooby, Shaggay and Velma split up to search for clues when Shaggy falls through a trapdoor and the Snow Ghost grabs Velma. Scooby comes just in time to see Velma chained to a log, going down a conveyor belt, which is being cut by a buzzsaw. Scooby pulls her off the conveyor belt and sends both off them down into the lake (log and all). The Snow Ghost sends a log carrying dynamite down towards them, but they escape. Scooby and Velma rendevouz with Freddy and Daphne and all are alarmed when they see Shaggy, pale and moaning like a phantom, but he returns to his normal color when he falls into a pool. Velma theorizes that he was sprayed with a white substance to make him look like a ghost. Fred begins to think that, maybe, the Snow Ghost isn't a phantom either They are interrupted when the Snow Ghost appears and chases them. Fred, Daphne and Velma hide behind a pile of logs. After the Snow Ghost leaves, Daphne discovers a hollow log that is filled with diamonds and jewelry. The Snow Ghost, gliding upright a few inches above the snow, chases Shaggy and Scooby, who try to escape in a snowmobile. They wind up frozen like popsicles when they run into thin ice. They are chipped out by the rest of the gang, but their accident gives Fred an idea: They'll lure the Snow Ghost to a place where they can quick-freeze him by dumping a tub of water on him. But the Snow Ghost appears behind Scooby, and the water freezes too quickly to be used on him. Scooby and the Ghost fight but are knocked down when Shaggy catapults an enormous snowball at them. They cannonade down the slope, catching up the rest of the gang before crashing into a cliff face. The Snow Ghost is unmasked as Mr. Greenway. He and his partner Mr. Leech used Fu-lan Chi's story of the Snow Ghost as a cover for their smuggling operation; as the Snow Ghost. Greenway "flew" by using transparent plastic skis.moreless
  • unique

    9.0
    i thought that this episode was very unique. Just the way the clues were found and the suspects were classified. I thought it ws very unique. The way the cave with the man in it was very different but interesting. I like how they snow buggied around. I also like how they captured the monster. they all once again tried to do there trap for the monster but it didn't work again because scooby and shaggy messed it up. But the all tumbled down a hill and fell right on top of the monster. A classic scooby dooby doo ending.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Scooby puts on Velma's glasses to get a better look at the chains, but this makes no sense. From the dialogue whenever Velma loses her glasses ("My glasses! I can't see a thing without them!") at least implies that she is severly myopic (near-sighted). This may seem irrelivant, but perscriptions for people with myopia make things appear smaller! If he wanted to get a better look, he would have been screwed over using Velma's glasses!

    • Shaggy sends a balloon up with a Scooby Snack tied to it for Scooby in this episode. So, where'd the helium come from? And wouldn't a Scooby Snack weigh the balloon down?

    • This episode marks two times that Scooby has on Velma's glasses. In "Decoy For A Dognapper," a bat plucks them from Velma's face and drops them on Scooby. Here, Scooby takes Velma's glasses (she's chained to a log on which she and Scooby are making a getaway) to get a closer look at the dynamite pursuing them.

    • When Scoob tried to throw the water on the snow ghost; if it would have froze that quickly it would have frozen in the bucket, not when Scooby tried to throw it at the snow ghost.

    • When the log with the dynamite fell in the water the lit dynamite should have been put out.
